City of Tshwane favors electricity and water for fiscal year 2022/2023 – SABC News

The city of Tshwane claims to give priority to the electricity grid and water grid in the 2022/2023 financial year.

This includes the refurbishment of the Mooikloof and Wapadrand substations, which are prone to outages.

Mayor Randal Williams gave a speech on the state of the city Thursday morning.

Williams said RUB 134 million has been invested in the refurbishment project, which will allow the various substations to operate efficiently.

He says: “These projects reinforce our commitment to prioritize, renovate and maintain our critical infrastructure to enable Tshwane’s economic growth. Without supply, we cannot encourage development and investment in our city. ”

Basic services

Williams says he is confident the city’s financial challenges will soon improve and allow basic services to be improved for residents.

He says the city has managed to raise more than 700 million R in revenue since November last year through the Tshwane Yatema campaign.

Williams said more projects will soon be implemented to ensure that the more than 4 billion R4 deficit inherited by the Democratic Alliance-led coalition from Gauteng Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs administrators is a thing of the past.

He says: “We were able to raise more than 700 million RUBs and we continued to make sure we maintained the momentum we started at the beginning of the year. Clearly, in November 2020, we inherited a significant deficit of more than 4 billion rupees from provincial administrators. Changing the city’s financial situation has not been easy, but we are gradually moving forward. ”
